Ethiopian artefacts, including a Bible, crosses and an Imperial shield, looted at the Battle of #Maqdala1868 are to be returned to #Ethiopia thanks to The Scheherazade Foundation, who purchased the items through a UK-based auction house and private dealers.

Speaking on the occasion at a reception held at The Athenaeum Club, Ambassador Teferi thanked The Scheherazade Foundation for their work in acquiring the precious items and renewed calls for museums, collectors & holders of #Maqdala1868 heritage to return them to #Ethiopia.

The Scheherazade Foundation CEO, Tahir Shah said he knew what the return of the objects would mean to Ethiopians and that through his Foundation, he hopes to build bridges between the two nations.
The Embassy will make arrangements for the items to be returned to #Ethiopia.
